Unboxing Video ( With Gaming & Benchmark Analysis )

Ps : We didnt got the Earphones in our Unit , hence have not showed it in the Video – , But You will get it in your Retail Box !


The design of the Nokia 5.1 Plus Looks Super Classy , it has a sleek design , the phone weight is well distributed all over the place and feels Pretty light in holding.

The back is Made up of  2.5D Curvature Glass which is Super Reflective and also Attracts Fingerprints and is bit Slippery , Suggest you to Get a Back Case for the Same .

But Overall the Design is Highly pleasing to eyes , It doesn’t look like a low budget smartphone . The Volume Rockers and Power Buttons are Tactile and give good feedback . The Phone has Rounded Edges which makes it easy to grip , But Sometimes the Phone feels Slippery due to its Smooth Glass Back Finish .


Nokia 5.1 Plus has a 5.86 inch, 19:9 , HD+ (720 x 1520 pixels ) LCD Display . It Also has some kind of toughened glass protection . As Any Nokia phone it also has deep blacks and colors pop Out to be very well , Sunlight visibility is Great .

Brightness is Good enough & the there are minimal bezels and oh yeah there is a Notch ! Which can be Disabled from Display Settings if you Dont want it . I am Highly Impressed with the Display on the Nokia 5.1 Plus .

Glance Feature ( Ambient Display )

When the Phone Screen is off , a part of the Screen shows a Glance of Important information like Missed Calls , Text Messages , Emails , Alarm info , etc . This feature is quite useful for me as i can see my Useful information on the screen without unlocking it . Cool Right ! .

You can Even Customize the time the Information is on Screen , By default the time is set to 1 Min , After That the screen will be Off and wont Show info Until and Unless there is movement of phone in Hand !

Note : Glance feature is now in all Nokia Android Smartphones


The Nokia 5.1 Plus comes with a MediaTek Helio P60 Chipset , which performs very well and is lag free , it is Coupled with 3GB Ram 32 GB Storage + 256 GB of external storage .

This Phone has a Hybrid Sim Slot , General apps like Instagram , Facebook , Whatsapp and emails open up quickly , Multitasking on this phone is also good enough considering it has only 3GB Ram , many of the apps are retained in the Memory , In my testing Period i never faced any lags in the UI .

The fingerprint sensor on the rear is fast & Accurate , and it gives a Good haptic feedback , which will give you the sense of unlocking the Phone .

Audio & Telephony

The Call Quality via the Call Speaker is loud and clear and the Sound via the Main Speaker is Super loud and Crisp , Which Gives you a Immersive Multimedia Experience . Even the Audio Output via the 3.5mm Jack is Good Enough


I tired playing Asphalt 8 , Tekken , Dead Trigger 2 , etc on this mobile and most games played Pretty Smoothly without any lags . We Mostly Played the games on Medium Graphics Settings and everything was buttery Smooth .


There was Rarely any Heat , All Thanks to the Glass Back on the Nokia 5.1 Plus.

My Experience

It packs a 13MP Primary Sensor + 5MP Depth Sensor – Which is Capable of taking Good Pictures , The photos comes out to be quite natural , and are not over processed .

The Photos Taken in Low light too are Good Enough with Minimal Grains and Photos in Good lighting Conditions are Amazing with Perfect Edge Detection which gives perfect depth of field ( Bookeh Effect ) – Blurred Baground .

Same goes with the front Camera it packs a 8MP Front Selfie Camera which takes descent Selfies and also it has Some AI based Features like Potrait Lighting , Bookeh Blur , Etc
